Heartbreaking barks sound like 'help' from senior Rottweiler at kill shelter

See also

Imagine how this senior dog named Metro must be feeling after having been dumped at Carson Animal Care Center; in fact this might be one of the saddest and most heartbreaking cries anyone has ever heard.

A volunteer visits with this 15-year-old Rottweiler, and as Metro sticks his black and tan nose through the bars of his temporary shelter, C123, his dark brown eyes desperately plead for help. That's not all though - listen to Metro's crying bark; hardly a doubt that this dog is begging for "help."

This is an earlier video with a volunteer and Metro.

Please take one minute of your time to share Metro's story and his picture. Sharing saves lives. These dogs are so depressed to have lost the people they love; they are scared, they are lonely, and they are profoundly sad. They are all alone hoping someone will unlock their prison and save their life.
